Basically, yeah it's vital to practice with a metronome. Make sure you lift each finger after you hit the note, so it doesn't ring as a chord, etc...There isn't any cheating to get it done quicker with them , it just takes dedication, the right knowledge, and a metronome. Start with the basic 3 string sweeps before anything else.

My method to improve sweeping skills:

First do it all legato. (Hammer and pull off ALL notes.)Using your strumming hand, cross over your fretting hand and GRAB the fretboard around the 4th fret or so while you do the following legato:

----------------------------------11-h-15-p-11---------------
------------------------------13------------------13----------
---------------------------12------------------------12-------
------------------------13------------------------------13----
---------------------15------------------------------------15-
----------------------------------------------------------------


after you get good at hitting all the notes on time, THEN do it while downpicking the first 5 notes and up-picking the last 5 notes.

On that note, does anyone have a good tab site that just has a bunch of sweeping tabs and what not? I have been doing the same 8 sweeps I know for a long time and it's getting old.
